Pit People Official Release (Out Now!)

Today, Pit People officially released on Steam and Xbox One! In just a little over a year, we were able to kiss early access goodbye thanks to the help of our Early Access & Game Preview supporters!

Pit People’s full release will include:

  • Full Story including all cinematics
  • Single player Story Mode
  • 2 player local co-op
  • 2 player online co-op
  • Insane Mode
  • Permadeath Mode
  • 100+ missions and quests
  • 200 regions to explore
  • 1500+ unlocks
  • Daily Tournaments (Unfair Challenge with up to 2 players, PVP with up to 4 players)

For those of you who have been playing since Early Access, you can check out the full changelist below.

We’re currently working on another update for the future, but when that comes out and what will be included will be finalized later, after analyzing release feedback. (For science!)

Launch Discount

Some more good news: Pit People retails at $19.99 USD, but we’ve extended our early access discount until March 13, 2018. Get the game at 25% OFF ($14.99 USD) during its launch week!

Launch Celebrations

We’ve also got a couple events going on next Week:

Reddit AMA
Wednesday, March 7th, 10AM PST / 1PM EST

Just days after the full release launch, we’ll be holding a reddit AMA at the IAmA subreddit. Come ask us anything about Pit People or any of our games. Bring us your words!

Live stream of Pit People
Thursday, March 8th, 3PM-5PM PST

We’ll be playing Pit People and talking in depth about its development. You can watch and chat during the live stream at one of our channels: Twitch, YouTube, Facebook.

It’ll be another chance to chat with our team about Pit People and what we’ve changed since early access. Speaking of which…


Pit People full release on March 2nd!

That’s right, Pit People has officially received its final touches and has a release date. On Friday, March 2nd, Pit people will be available for both Steam and Xbox One! You can pick it up early right now even, and watch it in your library, transforming before your very eyes!

For those of you who already have the early access copy of Pit People, thank you for being part of our game development journey! Our Early Access period lasted a total of 409 days. That’s one of the fastest records in Early Access history (no need to fact check this, it’s probably right)!

So what’s in the thing? The Story is completed, cinematics and all, along with a whole new World Map with 15 additional bonus missions. There’s been a lot of balancing, polish, and ‘quality of life’ features ‘n tweaks to go along with it! Definitely our largest changelist to date. If you want to see it in its official officialness, please check out our launch post on March 2nd!
